Varied menu, good food, pleasant, knowledgeable wait staff. The salmon was delicious and cooked perfectly. The lobster ravioli stuffed with chunks of seafood, but the pasta a bit overcooked. Eve

Wasn't too sure what to expect as recommended by the tour guide and was situation right at the foot of where you board the boat but decided to take the chance. It was bustling busy but our waitress quickly found us a seat. The menu is plentiful and watching our fellow eaters food being brought out made it so difficult... More

June 28, 2015: I went to Spanky's for a second time, for a birthday treat from my daughters. I was there last August 2014 and had the seafood chowder and lobster roll. That visit, the chowder was as creamy and tasty as could be, and the lobster roll packed. Today we had the appetizer sampler (delicious- but my favorite, the... More

We spend the last week and a half touring Cape Cod, Boston, and Newport. Overall, this was the best meal of the week! Delicious stuffed lobster, lobster bisque, and drinks on the patio!! We only had to wait 5 minutes for a table and we had great service from an older local waitress who was spot on with her recommendations.

Pretty good place. Eat either inside immediately or wait for a table outside if the weather is good. Lobster roll with fries is a signature dish and is well worth ordering: a real abundance of good quality lobster is served, too much to eat the roll without a knife and fork. We also shared a side order of fried full... More

Visited this place. We only wanted a drink. The older women who seats the customers said was it drinks from the bar. We replied yes. We sat down outside and my partner went to the bar. Well you should have heard her at the top of her husky smokes too much voice. Asked why we went to get it ourself... More

Spanky's Clam Shack was our go to spot! We stayed across the street so not only was it great drinks, food, service, GR8 views of the harbor but it was also excellent location for us as well! We loved this place =) I recommend the Fried Scallops and the Fried Clam Strips Roll, VERY fresh and moist!

Stopped for lunch. We had lobster roll and fried clam strip roll. Both were delicious. Fries were good too. A little skimpy on the coleslaw, but it was good too. Nice to visit if in Hyannis.

Right on the water, at the docks in Hyannis. Our favorite is the lobster salad. Big enough to take home half for later. Very light on the mayo and huge chunks of lobster. You can have it on garden salad or ceasar salad. Drinks are pricey. Fried seafood is excellent. Worth the trip. Can be noisy inside depending on where... More

This is your average diner. Pretty crowed since it's on the water. Food was just ok after it finally made it to the table and the waitress way to busy to take care of us. Understand it's season, but with a few more helping hands in the service it would have been a better experience.
